The authors, students and advisors contribution to an academic publication. Questions like how much contribution is needed to be a co-author of a paper best fits to this tag.
So far the tag has been applied to
- How/when to become independent in research as a graduate student?
- To what extent should a professor give students freedom to do independent research?
- Advisor's/University's rights in the PhD/MSc alumni's research projects and publications
(It's not clear to me, based on the suggested definition, how this tag is relevant to the first two.)
Is this tag useful and/or necessary? If so, can someone explain how it applies to the first two questions listed above?
